A lot of people complain about God destroying an entire city, I don’t love it either but think for a moment what it would be like growing up in a city where a bunch of men thought there was nothing wrong with wanting to rape another man. What chance would a child have of growing up to be a decent person in a place like that? It seams to me that growing up in a place like that would make one either as evil as his neighbor, or suicidal. As a victim of abuse myself I know how this sort of thing affects a child, and it isn’t good. Those children who died the day the town was destroyed were either given grace, because they were not yet accountable for their crimes against both man and God, if they are old enough to be accountable they certainly had a lot less sin to be punished for then they would have, if they had been allowed to live a long life. While it still isn’t a passage I like to study, it does give me reason enough to know that God had his reasons for doing this and that they were good ones.
